On Saturday, November 4th the Blenders Music Series is pleased to host two amazing groups at the Lyric Theatre in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Sweet Alibi is a Winnipeg-based folk/pop band that infuses its signature harmonies with influences of everything from folk to country to soul, without a hint of shame. Also that evening we will have Ontario born, singer-songwriter Jadea Kelly.

Sweet Alibi hails from Winnipeg, Manitoba and are fast becoming a well-known root and pop group. Their charming and personal performances have resulted in 3 album releases and 360+ shows to date. Established in 2009, the band is composed of three women: Amber Nielsen, Jessica Rae Ayre, and Michelle Anderson. These three women blend powerful vocal harmonies with the foot stomping energy of roots and sincere sound of folk music.

The band’s career first started with their initial self-titled album released in 2011 and their most recent album “Walking in the Dark” was released in November of 2015. Since then their third album has been featured on CBC, MTV Canada, CMT, satellite and college radio.

Sweet Alibi are also Western Canadian Music Award winners and 2016 nominees. As The Manitoban said about Sweet Alibi, “The appeal of Sweet Alibi’s sound hinges on their ability to mix elements of folk, roots, and country, then present it in the context of a tightly-structured pop song”. As well, Chaka V. from The Winehouse Magazine says, “Heartfelt lyrics and that intangible quality that often catapults a band into stardom. In 2012 they were nominated for best vocalist as the Canadian Folk Music Awards…and recently they were a featured band at the Junos”. This award-winning band will give a spectacular performance you do not want to miss!


Opening the stage for Sweet Alibi is Jadea Kelly—a singer-songwriter from Whitby, Ontario. As winner of the 2016 ‘Contemporary Singer of the Year’ award from the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Kelly is an enigmatic performer whose work has earned her several impressive worldwide reviews. Kelly has also done multiple tours across North America and Europe. Her music guides the listener on a prolific journey towards light and surrender and Kelly’s recent release of her album “Love & Lust” is a compelling catalogue of desire, betrayal, and human frailty.

You will not want to miss Sweet Alibi and Jadea Kelly at the Lyric Theatre on Saturday, November 4th. Tickets will be $35 and are available at Pharmasave. Doors will open at 7:30pm and the music will begin at 8:30pm.
